Alternative art scene showcases performing and visual arts in a cavernous gallery space..
This reverberating warehouse space is literally, what you make of it. A non-profit mix of the arts, Eyedrum is known as much for its genre-free indie and experimental music showcases as for its visual-art exhibits. The gallery is open twice a week, but there are other opportunities to visit. Live music is featured two to three nights a week, along with the popular "Improvisation Night" on the first Thursday of each month. The last Wednesday of each month is film and video night, and lectures are occasionally offered.
An eclectic mix of attitude-free thrift-store cowboys, it's a comfortable retreat from traditional hipster hangouts. Black-rimmed spectacles make a big showing, but you won't feel like everyone is sizing up your indie cred. Acoustics leave something to be desired, but Eyedrum's willingness to book a chance is admired--everything from complex video installations to an exhibition dedicated to the penis.
Not what you would expect in Atlanta. An real strange place. I felt welcome there even though I did not understand much of the art. The music totally lived up to everthing I had heard about the space. I was told there were no paid employees which I found hard to believe.
